It all started with Beal's determination to solve the 350-year-old mystery of Fermat's Last Theorem - the idea that Ax + By = Cz. Beal realized that there could only be solutions to the equation when A, B, and C have a common numerical factor.

Are you guys silly? 3 variables times 3 variables arranged in an equation..
There is no answer..
It's a lot like life, actually..
He'd bet more than 1/8 thousandth of his worth if he expected something.
It's only there to make you think in 3 dimensions, which is the future of rational thought. Not that I can do that coherently either..

If Ax + By = Cz, where A, B, C, x, y and z are positive integers and x, y and z are all greater than 2, then A, B and C must have a common prime factor.
where A, B, C, x, y and z are positive integers
x, y and z are all greater than 2
then A, B and C must have a common prime factor
The prize is now this: $1,000,000 for either a proof or a counterexample of his conjecture.

I predict this will eventually be solved by some genius prodigy child or teenager, who may not even be aware of the rewards for the correct answer. Someone, eventually, will have a mind wired just right to look at it and say "Ah-HA! That's EASY! Here's the answer, silly!"
